MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Nearly 140 Middlebury undergraduate researchers gave the campus community a look at what they had been working on for the last eight weeks during the annual Summer Research Symposium on July 27 at McCardell Bicentennial Hall. All told, the students put in more than 42,000 hours of research this summer on topics representing 22 academic disciplines as well as STEM and Digital Liberal Arts projects.

Students in the undergraduate research program work closely with faculty mentors during the summer. Their work is funded by multiple sources, including faculty and institutional grants and gifts to the College.

“Faculty benefit from quality research assistance supporting their scholarship,” said Lisa Gates, associate dean for fellowships and research, “and students benefit from the in-depth learning and mentoring possible over the summer weeks.”
